The idea of growing in the dark- and it must be cool as well- is to get root development before the bud develops-then you give it light after the 10/12 week period
If they are forced bulbs they seldom flower again indoors so plant outside-it may take a couple of years for it to build up to flower again properly
if you start them in the dark they tend not to be so floppy and don't forget the charcoal in the water to keep it clear.keep them in a cupboard your going to visit once in awhile.good luck.
Also, beware of them tilting over to one side too much and falling over. As Geoff says, they will grow normally outside if you give them a couple of years.
